March 2nd is #OldStuffDay

Afternoon #WarHamFam and #WarhammerCommunity I've been #PaintingWarhammer


Afternoon #WarHamFam and #WarhammerCommunity, just a heads up March 2nd is Old Stuff Day. More than a decade ago now warhammer39999 wanted to join a movement to rediscover lost gems from the world of hobby blogs and it's still going strong today. The aim is to choose one or more of your own blogposts that you're most proud of, or may not have got the attention it deserved, or any thing that may warrant some necromantic blogpost bothering. On top of that you share blogposts from other bloggers which you think deserves the same spotlight of attention, before they're returned to their dark nightmare infested slumbers.

However, I know a lot of hobbyists don't have blogs, maybe they Twitter or Insta, in which case go back to one of your old tweets and retweet or share one of your oldest figures or the first miniature you ever painted. If you feel inclined to check out the old fuddy-duddy blogosphere for cool posts that's cool too. And don't forget to add #OldStuffDay

So, if you have a blog don't forget to root through your old posts and rediscover those hidden gems. Feel free to use the Old Stuff Day poster by Firstkeeper from DeviantArt. Celebrate Old Stuff Day with the rest of us.

Old stuff day 2023


Morning #WarHamFam and #WarhammerCommunity it's #OldStuffDay 2023. Quite a few years ago now warhammer39999 wanted to join a movement to rediscover lost gems from the world of hobby blogs. To choose one of your own blogposts that you're most proud of, or may not have got the attention it deserved or any thing that may warrant some necromantic blogpost bothering. On top of that you were to share blogposts from other bloggers which you thought deserved the same spotlight of attention before they were returned to their dark nightmare infested slumbers.

Here's some great posts from other bloggers [apologies to the many great bloggers out there I haven't included, you do sterling work too, these are just the ones I was reminded to remember over the last 12 months]:

Bobo's Blood Bowl 7s pitch
I've not play Blood Bowl 7's but I suspect I'd like it. I will be making a 7's pitch for #ArmiesOnParade2023 and although this won't be my step-by-step it's pretty cool and helpful if you fancy giving it a go.

Dreadtober 2017
#DreadTober is a great community event in October to paint 'dread' sized figures. 2017 was the first year I got my act together and organised my projects so I could join in. I've been at it since and will continue to support it.
http://dreadtober.blogspot.com/p/dreadtober-2017.html

Heresy & Heroes Hobby Desk Photo Essay
John is along time blogger and ex-Games Workshop staffer. He did a photo essay in 2017 asking for our hobby desks and info on how we work, I even contributed. Maybe it's due an update?
https://heresyandheroes.com/our-desks-a-photo-essay/

Old School Gaming
OK, I'm cheating here as Marc's first post is not old, it was posted on the 10th of Feb this year! But the content is really old - a beautiful 2nd edition Termagant brood. I would love this. 
Additionally there's a post from December 2022, but it's the classic alien cactus terrain and lastly a genuine old post from 2014 in his awesome Iron Snakes. Marc is a banner bearer for Old School, hence the blog title, so go check them out.
https://oldschoolg4m1ng.blogspot.com/2022/12/retro-alien-cactus-to-done.html

Tale of Painters
Tale of Painters is a great collection of hobbyists so you never know what's going to pop up as this fantastic Death Guard by Shvagyer army illustrates

In another universe I did paint my Imperial Knights House Hawkshroud, but I may have had hot dogs for fingers and they came out rubbish. But when I see Aurélie's I hope they turned out awesome.

le Blog dé Kouzes!
le Blog dé Kouzes is always inspirational and Morback's plague/chaos armies are amazing, this knight in particular.
As well as the plague Centaurion.
Also check out this collection of posts by Larg which are really inspirational and covers a huge swathe of the history of their blog

Chucking Monkeys
Still one of the most impressive conversions by Monkey Chuka

Blue Warp Studios
Liam makes really cool things from scratch. He's entered the world of 3D printing now, so we may never see the likes of these scratchbuilds again. When you can design and print in resin who needs to cut and glue plasticard, then sculpt in greenstuff and Milliput?

Weemen
Siph gives great advice on unifying a theme. With so many armies and factions you may want to collect having a way to tie them is really helpful.

From The Warp
As always, Ron From the Warp remains the inspiration for the blog. it may be 11 year's since he stepped away from blogging and we only shared the blogosphere for 18 months or so but you acknowledge those that came before and he did it so well. It might be slightly challenging to navigate now but there is so much great content here for those willing to explore - fill your boots.


And to my own blogposts. 
If I'm honest I don't know where to start, this will be my 1,997th post [now that's a milestone] how do you choose? I've probably done this before though and used my showcase. It represents almost everything I've completed since I started the blog. Finishing things was the motivation for the blog, it helped keep my hobby mojo flowing and it's helped me to record all my efforts and celebrate what I've achieved.

But also, it's been 7 year's since I hosted my terrain competition but it's still a huge sense of pride that the community came together and made things.

Old stuff day 2022


Morning #WarHamFam and #WarhammerCommunity it's #OldStuffDay 2022. A few years ago now warhammer39999 wanted to join a movement to rediscover lost gems from the world of hobby blogs. To choose one of your own blogposts that you're most proud of, or may not have got the attention it deserved or any thing that may warrant some necromantic blogpost bothering. On top of that you were to share blogposts from other bloggers which you thought deserved the same spotlight of attention before they were returned to their dark nightmare infested slumbers.

Here's some great posts from other bloggers [apologies to the many great bloggers out there I haven't included, you do sterling work too, these are just the ones I was reminded to remember over the last 12 months]:

Who wouldn't want a tutorial on making/sculpting candle?

Henry South is an Oscar and Bafta winning film special FX genius. He's also a hobbyist once kept a fascinating blog about his effort. Although he's stopped blogging the great thing is all his content is still there and there are some great posts. This one how to be a better painter may well change your view on paint brushes

Part 2 is available here.

And, as mental health quite often finds itself a concern among hobbyists this may well be of benefit

Alex From the Fang is another loss to the hobby blogging community. His Blog Wars tournaments were my favourite events, although his doubles tournament - Double Trouble was even more fun. Blog Wars 6 was my first attendance, immortalised in this here painting competition

OK, so another one about me [sort of] but it's from a blog that at least is still going and does highlight my long running connection with weemen, not just Siph generously commenting and giving feedback on every blogpost I make [for which I am eternally grateful]

Mike Corr is another blogger who I connected with through Blog Wars and although eventually it wasn't a prerequisite to taking part in the tournament he subsequently would start a blog. If you are contemplating it you might want to think like Mike did and come up with some sort of continuous post. Here he interviewed various other bloggers, 54 in fact. Each one is an interesting take on the hobby from those willing to share their exploits. Well worth checking out the list and you can see I got featured at number 6

When I start collecting links for Old Stuff Day it can be early in the year and then when I come to write the blog post I don't always know why I picked the links that I did. For some reason I decided a post on modular gaming tables would be appropriate. Now I did think I perhaps just copied the link from another Old Stuff Day post, and that still may be the case, but I can't find it if I did
http://realmsofminiatures.blogspot.com/2012/04/modular-gaming-table-part-9.html

And to my own blogposts. Having felt disheartened by my foray into 9th edition I thought I'd share some amazing experiences from previous editions that I hope one day to re-experience.

Birthday Bash 2.0 [click through for more reports]

Lastly, I held a terrain competition 6 years ago, utilising funds from my advertising revenue to supply prizes. I'm just over three quarters of the way to doing it again but I'm still pleased with the efforts of those involved.

Old Stuff Day 2020


Afternoon #warmongers it's #OldStuffDay 2020. A few years ago now warhammer39999 wanted to join a movement to rediscover lost gems from the world of hobby blogs. To choose one of your own blogposts that your most proud of, or may not have got the attention it deserved or any thing that may warrant some necromantic blogpost bothering. On top of that you were to share blogposts from other bloggers which you thought deserved the same spotlight of attention before they were returned to their dark nightmare infested slumbers.

Here's some great posts from other bloggers [apologies to the many great bloggers out there I haven't included, you do sterling work too, these are just the ones I was reminded to remember over the last 12 months]:

Siph_Horridus is a huge support to 40kadddict and the blogging community, much like Greggles, constantly commenting on posts - I don't know how he reads so many blogs, I wish I could do the same. But he's also a blogger in his own right as part of the WeeMen collective. Their blog has been going for 12 years, you know a blog is old - when it has a From the Warp Blogger Group Badge. So, why not go back to the very beginning - 6th November 2008 and basing made easy:
https://weemen.blogspot.com/2008/11/basing-made-easy-10-steps-to-perfection.html
While you're there also check out what Siph did over the next 10 years with those Relictors:
https://weemen.blogspot.com/2018/11/relictors-space-marine-battle-company.html

Speaking of Greg from greggles tabletop, how about his amazing rust cart for the Nova Open 2017. There's amazing close-ups and more importantly the recipe, for how to do that weathered rusty yellow:
https://www.feedyournerd.com/greggles-tabletop/trust-in-rust-is-ready-for-nova-open-2017

I'm not entirely sure what specifically prompted me to include this link [I add posts throughout the year and then cobble together the Old Stuff Day post just before the date]. However, there is plenty to look at from tutorials to painting galleries, so just explore the blog.
https://figurepainters.com/

You know me, I love a good weathered bronze statue. Brian from A Gemtleman's Ones hasn't updated his blog since 2014 but he did this post on verdigris back in 2010
http://agentlemansones.blogspot.com/2010/11/my-way-weathered-statues.html
Now the weird thing is a month back, when thinking about what to add to the links for my Old Stuff Day post I recalled a series of posts about some amazing Kill Zone [one of the intermediate home-brew rules for Kill Team that existed before GW brought '40k in 40 minutes' back in from the cold]. I knew they had been for some big American event but I did a search and there were just too many Kill Team boards from recent events, not helped because I didn't know if it was Nova, LVO or Adepticon. Anyway, when I go back and research why I picked these posts to resurrect I have another look at the blogs and lo-and-behold Brian was the creator of the tables I was looking for. He made these amazing tables and if you click the link and go backwards through the posts you can see how they were built. There is so much more to see on his blog so go check it out:
http://agentlemansones.blogspot.com/2011/04/adepticon-tables-from-thursday-evening.html

I know this isn't quite 6 months old but this post by Andrew about the hobby, social media and self-imposed expectations on your efforts is an amazing read. He managed to encapsulate so much about the way we as hobbyists might aspire to the heights of social media notoriety that other hobbies/interest have, when in reality we should be content to pursue our hobby at our own pace and to our own goals
https://hobbyvices.org/2019/09/01/its-a-hobby-after-all/

David Soper is a 5 time Golden Demon Slayer Sword winner [among many other awards] his blog is fantastic if you want to see how the experts do it. I've shared links in the past, in particular his guides to stippling is well worth checking. What I wanted to share this time is two posts he made about 'building a better tank' I'm not sure if this ever got finished but you should look at it for the awesome kitbashing that goes on:
https://sproketsmallworld.blogspot.com/2017/12/project-p30-tank.html
https://sproketsmallworld.blogspot.com/2019/02/project-p30-building-better-tank.html

Another blog that sadly hasn't been updated since 2017, although that's what Old Stuff Day is about. But because it has gone into hibernation it may be unknown to many. That said the Painting Bunker has some awesome scenery posts. I recently saw someone questioning the parts used having just seen an image on google or some other image aggregation site and thought 'folk should see the rest of this stuff' - check 'em out.
https://thepaintingbunker.com/category/scenery/
https://thepaintingbunker.com/2013/03/03/forge-world-realm-of-battle-cityscape-6-x-4-board-complete/

I've not yet done a concept army or monotone one as I've dreamed of yet. I may have been able to adopt a more painterly style that I think is enjoyable to do, looks good and doesn't actually require the smooth blending skills I now have neither the time, patience, motor skills or aptitude to achieve. But check out this amazing cel-shade Robotech model - I mean it's just flat colours. Maybe there is another way, I wonder what it's like on more organic forms?
http://www.40kaddict.uk/2013/11/cel-shade-robotech-awesomeness.html

And now for something completely different. Before I fell off the wagon and started the hobby again I was happy in my kendo world and I blogged about that too. One of those posts was on the Japanese concept of giri which I may very well have completely misunderstood. But, without kendo, without what I believed giri was, without that sense of belonging, duty and commitment, I would never have been able to adapt to losing my passion and rediscovering my old love for the hobby. Being able to play a game as a shared experience, instead of 'win at all costs', without kendo that would never have happened.
http://kendomusings.blogspot.com/2011/12/giri.html

Happy Old Stuff Day, I hope there are some gems in there that caused you some inspiration or motivation.

Old Stuff Day 2019


It's old stuff day 2019. A few years ago now warhammer39999 wanted to join a movement to rediscover lost gems from the world of hobby blogs. To choose one of your own blogposts that your most proud of, or may not have got the attention it deserved or any thing that may warrant some necromantic blogpost bothering. On top of that you were to share blogposts from other bloggers which you thought deserved the same spotlight of attention before they were returned to their dark nightmare infested slumbers.

Here's some great posts from other bloggers [apologies to the many great bloggers out there I haven't included, you do sterling work too, these are just the ones I was reminded to remember over the last 12 months]:

The ever awesome Alex fitted out his garage as a gaming and hobby space. If you want to see how to do that sort of conversion then go check it out. I think there's only three parts but the results are brilliant
http://fromthefang.blogspot.com/2016/12/gaming-garagetm-conversion-part-2.html

The Mandulian Chapel hasn't posted in 4 years so this is prime Old Stuff fodder as folk may not have come across the blog, it had some good stuff. This Swamp Board by Grubnards was particularly impressive, here's the first post
http://synaps3.blogspot.com/2014/04/swamp-board-genesis.html
The rest of the posts can be accessed here: http://synaps3.blogspot.com/search/label/Swamp%20Terrain 

Shameless of me but this is Iapedus post about building terrain in which he made some of my print & play templates. I'd never seen so much of it used in one space and the clever approach to print it on card and have bases they could slot into - allowing it all to be folded up to ensure maximising space was genius.
https://languormanagement.wordpress.com/2017/10/04/build-it-and-they-will-come/

This Spanish [with English version] hobby blog has some additional scenery resources here, well worth checking out. 
http://www.toposolitario.es/workshop/index_scenery.html

Not so 'old' but Tangible Day has a great post on 'Focus Stacking for better miniature photos'. It's a long read and requires some extra skill and effort but if you want to take you miniature photos to the next level then you'll need to put the hard miles in - go check it out.
https://tangibleday.com/2018/12/04/focus-stacking-for-better-miniature-photos-how-to/

I'm not sure if I've posted this before on Old Stuff Day, but it's worth it again anyway. Mr Pink and his insanely good Sector Imperialis basing, to be honest anything on his site is worth a look.
http://www.modernsynthesist.com/2016/11/sector-imperialis-easy-urban-basing.html

And what of the Old Stuff Day instigator himself - Warhammer 39,999? In 2016 I managed to [unknowingly] convince him to buy a Gormiti Fire Mountain Playset to turn into a Tyranid Bastion. As far as I can tell this was the last update, he'll tell me if I'm wrong, but if I'm not it needs finishing Dude! I will add in his first post on the subject he wrote these words'Typically I reserve my 40k stuff for my blog, preferring to wall off my facebook profile due to nerdshame, but Dwez brings out the best in me'... 
https://warhammer39999.wordpress.com/2016/06/13/tyranid-bastion-progress-green-stuff-and-gubbinz/

And lastly the Godfather of Hobby Blogging, to which I still owe so much, even though he doesn't post any more - Ron From the Warp - still a treasure trove of hobby goodness we should all routinely visit first to answer a question - 'how do you make a greenstuff cloak?' Like this!
http://fromthewarp.blogspot.com/2012/06/how-to-sculpt-greenstuff-cloaks-and.html

And what of my own posts?

How about post numero uno? 25th October 2010, that's as old as I get and it kind of sets up my history and is a jumping off point to read my entire blog from start to finish... if you're a sadist, mind.
https://www.40kaddict.uk/2010/10/ive-really-fallen-of-wagon-now.html

And you could follow that up with a post I did a couple of months after that when I thought I'd exhausted my content but actually set out my basic blog manifesto
https://www.40kaddict.uk/2010/12/whats-in-blog.html

More recently I moved all [well, almost all ;) ] my hobby into '40kaddict towers' or the 'man-cave'. I still can't believe the effort I put into it and what I got out of it, especially having finally painted the back room last year so we now have a dining room. Not only do I have a room for my hobby the extra 'nice' room in my house has been great for family dinners and most likely added value to the house. That has definitely offset the £1200-£1400 it cost to do, and when a Warlord Titan costs nearly that it almost feels like a bargain! It certainly gets more use than a Titan would. An absolute no brainer and theres step-by-step pics of how I went about fitting it out in subsequent posts [in case Alex's garage was too fancy].
https://www.40kaddict.uk/2015/07/40kaddict-towers-man-cave-has-arrived.html

You may or may not have noticed but I have a milestone approaching, just over 2 years ago I made my first million...

Old Stuff Day 2018


It's old stuff day 2018. A few years ago now warhammer39999 wanted to join a movement to rediscover lost gems from the world of hobby blogs. To choose one of your own blogposts that your most proud of, or may not have got the attention it deserved or any thing that may warrant some necromantic blogpost bothering. On top of that you were to share blogposts from other bloggers which you thought deserved the same spotlight of attention before they were returned to their dark nightmare infested slumbers.

The two posts I'm going to shine a spotlight on are posts where I tried to tackle the issue of keeping motivated.

http://www.40kaddict.uk/2012/11/misdirection.html

http://www.40kaddict.uk/2013/10/the-hobby-matrix-or-how-to-beat-your.html

Which reminds me of Tabletop Minion's recent video





From other blogs, first up one of the single most useful reminders of why Army Painter washes are awesome and in also reminds us of the Godfather of hobby blogging the great Ron From the Warp
http://fromthewarp.blogspot.co.uk/2012/05/devlan-mud-and-badab-black-wash.html

If you don't have a plan on how to do your bases but want something unique and stylish then just do this:

I fell in love with the Brush Brothers approach to rusty gold when I first saw it in 2010, these Blood Angels were particularly awesome. I've never quite reached their quality with my own brassy/bronze but here's a step-by-step guide to achieve awesome.
http://thebrushbrothers.blogspot.co.uk/2010/06/rusty-gold-tutorial.html

Warren Ludwig makes beautiful terrain, this selection of caves and the process in making them is a pleasure to behold and truly inspirational.
http://ludstuff.blogspot.co.uk/search/label/Sculpture-Tabletop%20Gaming

Again terrain, John at the Painting Bunker made this air strip for a 30k tournament back in 2014. The finished article is fantastic, but search deeper and you will discover how it was made...
https://thepaintingbunker.com/2014/03/10/air-strip-one-finished/

Monkeychuka makes some amazing models, this Carnifex inside a Tyrannocyte is a thing of obscene beauty and skill. Couple that with the best Vargheist wing kitbash Tyranid Warriors to Shrikes [the link I always use to answer the question that regularly comes up on Facebook/forums].
http://monkeychuka.blogspot.co.uk/2015/04/in-utero.html
http://monkeychuka.blogspot.co.uk/2015/02/charlies-angels.html

Who doesn't like les Kouzes? To think at least one [sorry don't know if it's more] went on to join GW and sculpt many of the new Death Guard. Anyway, this post from 2014 shows how to paint 'brucked-up' yellow - oh my!
http://leskouzes.blogspot.co.uk/2014/02/maintenance-area-20.html

Darren 'Razza' Latham is a Games Workshop Miniatures Designer and former 'Eavy Metal figure painter. He judges the Golden Demon too, but what some may not know is he's had a blog since 2013, quietly posting away, less so in the last few years as twitter has probably taken over as a way to communicate. He posted in Feb though but it's Old Stuff Day so start in 2013 and work you forward to the future, the models are amazing.
http://razzaminipainting.blogspot.co.uk/2013/

Gavin Lee Manners does some amazing large model work, I wish I could do it. Check out this weathering guide and Imperial Knight from 2015 while marvelling more recently at the Warlord yet to come.

Just some inspiration pictures for textures and weathering on terrain. it was only last year I saw it but even so...

Just a heads up March 2nd is Old Stuff Day A few years ago now warhammer39999 wanted to join a movement to rediscover lost gems from the world of hobby blogs and it's still going strong today. To choose one or more of your own blogposts that you're most proud of, or may not have got the attention it deserved or any thing that may warrant some necromantic blogpost bothering. On top of that you are to share blogposts from other bloggers which you think deserves the same spotlight of attention before they're returned to their dark nightmare infested slumbers.

So if you have a blog don't forget to root through your old posts and rediscover those hidden gems. Feel free to use the Old Stuff Day poster by Firstkeeper from DeviantArt.
